Reaveley Hill Camp (Cheviotside)

The remains of an earthwork enclosure stand on the peak of Reaveley Hill. The two ramparts are irregular in shape and built of loose stone. On the hilltop the ramparts are built over outcrops of natural rock. The only entrance is in the lowest part of the earthwork on the south-east side. A small enclosure stands against the north side of the inner rampart, and another against the south side. A well-preserved hut circle is also visible. This site was a settlement of Iron Age or Roman date.
